[hylafax-users] R: faxrcvd customization.

Ok ... I never said Hylafax is in a "chrooted jail", rather I need
information regarding situation below:

I don't want to write anything in Faxdispatch files except the SENDTO rules,
rather I thought to change something in the faxrcvd.custom file above, but
I'm not a script expert.

Actually, HylaFAX doesn't have any problem writing to directories outside of

its spool directory. It's not actually in a chrooted jail, it's just that 
the paths are all relative to the chroot.

Understand though, that HylaFAX usually executes with UID = uucp, which 
means that if you _do_ copy files into (for instance) /usr/local/myfaxfiles 
using some custom code in FaxDispatch, then the uucp user needs the correct 
UNIX filesystem permissions to be able to write into that directory.
